You want something that you can reset after each section. Those Casio's are a bitch to set. I used to work in a watch store.

Like the last poster just make sure it's easy to reset it. And start using it wen u pt so ur used to it. If You have the money just buy a nice watch ull also use outside of the lsat. Splurge :) personal recommendation is a patek Philippe (for a girl perhaps a Cartier) :mrgreen:

It literally doesn't matter, and if you buy one of those $35 LSAT watches, I will personally come to your house and bitch slap you for keeping that TTT company in business.

If you can, get one with some sort of a chronograph. It helps because you don't have to waste your mental capacity calculating how many minutes you have remaining during the test, and it counts down to the second. You don't have to spend too much for one these days.

I have this:

I am a fan of dive watches, adjusting the bezel is a quick way to track an interval of time. An inexpensive option along this line is:

Casio MRW200H-1BV

Personally I will be using my Seiko SKX007.

Your best bet is to use a chronograph that includes a rotating bezel. I got this one for less than $40 in collateral damage.

The watch above is pretty good. As for OP, you might want to start wearing the watch you buy every day if you aren't yet comfortable wearing a watch. I didn't start wearing a wrist watch on a regular basis until I started studying for the LSAT, and took a little while to get used to it.

To add my recommendation, I would opt for a watch with a larger face and BIG numbers at each hour, with the hours numbered 1-12 (some watches substitute the hours with hash lines between times like 12 & 3 and that wasn't cutting it). The big face and numbers just make it that much easier to identify time used or time remaining.

I do like how the watch above has hash lines in between the numbers, suggesting a 2.5 minute divide between each 5 minute increment. That feature could be helpful to know if you're 7:30 into a game or RC passage. I'd like to have gotten something similar to that part as an additional feature (on top of bigger numbers and a bigger face)

I do think a leather band is a good choice, and I would certainly stay away from metal if possible, OP. The leather-banded watch I use for LSAT PT'ing and studying feels like its not there while I write, circle, or diagram, but i'm left handed so i dont have to physically orient my head in the opposite direction of my body while I use this watch. But a similar benefit may be conferred to right handed people. Leather bands aren't as uncomfortable/bulky as wearing and resetting a metal link watch. Being lefty and trying to use a watch with the standard right-handed orientation + metal links was just noticeably awkward and uncomfortable for me.

I would strongly advise against a luxury or ultra-luxury watch while taking the LSAT. You'll just have added concerns about trying not to scratching it and making sure its properly accounted for and not stolen or dropped.

Does anyone have a LSAT 35 min watch that could chime in? I want to know what its like resetting one of those.

Dont buy one of those stupid 'lsat timers' on amazo, thats for sure. Youre much better off with a good, accurate watch with a chronograph that counts down to the second. Wear it throughout your whole Lsat prep and you will be good to go come test day.
